Near the end of the third quarter the PA announcer told the crowd Kevin Garnett [1], 32, is the youngest player to play 1,000 NBA Games. He has started in all but 37 of them.

The previous record was held by Shawn Kemp, who broke the mark in December of 2002. Paul Pierce [2] was the first Celtic to stand up and cheer and KG received a standing O from the crowd.
